Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
For over 50 years SBCC's mission statement has been “To promote enjoyment and proficiency in all aspects of photography through education, fellowship, exchange of knowledge and experience; and a broad appreciation of nature and environment.” SBCC includes and welcomes members of all abilities. Whether a casual smartphone shooter or an advanced photographer, everyone grows in knowledge and experience through SBCC’s many programs and workshops.
The Stony Brook Camera Club meets virtually on Thursdays at 6:30 PM for a social hour and 7:30 for the program from September to June. See our calendar for the schedule of events. Our meetings feature competitions, speakers, image studies and discussions of general interest. We also sponsor a number of image-taking activities all year. Anyone is welcome to attend and experience what we are about, although participation in competitions and our many activities requires membership (see the Membership menu item in the Main Menu above).
We hope you enjoy this site and your time with us all.

SBCC Women vs Men Photo Challenge
If you decide to participate, on January 12, 2023, your name will be drawn randomly and paired with a member of the opposite sex, and then the two of you will be randomly assigned a category to shoot. You may interpret the category as you wish, and you can use images taken on any date.
The Challenge will be held on June 8, 2023 both at the Church and on Zoom. Your image will be shown side-by-side with your counterpart, where 2 judges (one female, one male) will evaluate and pronounce the winner. The overall Women vs Men winner will be tabulated and announced at the end of the evening.
While this is a Challenge, it is designed to be fun. Embrace the fun!
Signup by January 8, 2023 - 40 openings for each group

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT WORKSHOPS
Unless noted otherwise in the workshop description, all workshops will occur using Zoom, the same program we use for meetings. Although a microphone and webcam are recommended, you can participate with just a microphone. As with our meetings, once you register and pay, you will receive an email 2-3 days before the workshop giving you the information you will need to download the program, sign into the workshop and participate. If we do not fill the workshop with members by the deadline date for registration, we will have the option to open registration to non-members at an increased fee. Rest assured this will still be first come, first serve and will not exceed the maximum number of participants.
SBCC members can join the SBCC Meetup group for free. We schedule photo walks and field trips via Meetup. This is the LINK
